Charlie’s best investigators and Jaime Sommers meet in Dynamite’s latest crossover Charlie’s Angels/Bionic Woman. The Angels are sent to steal back a patent for its mysterious inventor, but The Bionic Woman is already on the job. Who will come out on top or will the trio team up with the cyborg to face an even bigger issue?
Set in the ‘80s after both television shows had their official finales, the new comic series is written by Cameron DeOrdio (Josie & the Pussycats) and drawn by Soo Lee (Strange Attractors, Fight Like a Girl). Addison Duke (Barbarella/Dejah Thoris, Curse Words) is on colors while Tom Napolitano (Justice League, Aquaman, Red Sonja) heads up letters. Expect thrilling covers from Cat Staggs (Crosswinds, Wonder Woman ’77, Star Trek), Jim Mahfood (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Tank Girl, Grrl Scouts), and Rob Lesser (The Spider).
“Charlie’s Angels/Bionic Woman is a story about good people trying to do good things who end up at cross purposes,” said DeOrdio. “We’ve made a spy comic, with sneaking around, exotic ‘80s tech, and tense undercover infiltration, but it’s also about questioning the track you find yourself on and defining for yourself what’s right, even if it means turning your whole life upside down. I’m really excited to have Soo Lee on board for this book. The way she draws both the Bionic Woman and the Angels perfectly captures their personalities, while also stylistically representing their differing perspectives.”
Lee states, “When I was asked if I wanted to work on a crossover comic of Charlie’s Angels and the Bionic Woman, I had to jump on the opportunity. I’ve always wanted to draw a ‘70/’80s themed comic and being a fan of the show, to be able to work on this project, is a dream. I wanted to be loyal to the style of the era and give a nod to the original series. Cameron and I both clicked on the vision for this story right away, and with his fun writing, I think we both brought the Angels back to life!”
